Experiences w/ Drive Imaging Software?

I have successfully backed up and restored both windows and linux machines with partimage: http://www.partimage.org/. Some features:

  • It compresses (gzip or bzip2) the allocated parts of filesystems, and leaves out the unallocated.
  • It can work in client server mode over the network.
  • It can automatically split files, e.g., on the 2G boundary
  • Available on live bootable linux cd:s such as knoppix
